THE BACKYARD THEATRE
In line with our vision to see to the advancement of creative content from this part of the world, we saw a strong need to be a part of the creation process and this led to the establishment of
THE BACKYARD THEATRE.
THE BACKYARD THEATRE is an outdoor theatre borne out of the necessity to spark an interest in this form of art among the emerging youth today who only frequent the cinema.
This theatre is a home to stage productions ranging from Poetry to monologues as well as plays.
The theatre also screens short films of indie filmmakers who seek an avenue and an audience to showcase their art.
The theatre also creates her own original content majorly short films which go on to screen fortnightly at the backyard in the presence of industry stakeholders.
Theater is a collaborative form of fine art that uses live performers, typically actors or actresses, to present the experience of a real or imagined event before a live audience in a specific place, often a stage. The performers may communicate this experience to the audience through combinations of gesture, speech, song, music, and dance. Elements of art, such as painted scenery and stagecraft such as lighting are used to enhance the physicality, presence and immediacy of the experience.
